The Svalbard archipelago is one of the most dramatic places on earth. Just 600 miles south of the North Pole, it is a land of rugged mountains, Arctic pack-ice, and ancient glaciers. Experience one of the last great wildernesses on Earth. Nothing can prepare you for your first sighting of a wild Polar Bear! Plus witness huge populations of sea birds, as well as Barnacle Goose, Red Phalarope, and more.
